After having mixed feelings about the first two books of the Red Queen series, I decided to try to see the series through to the end. Unfortunately for me, I found that this was my least favorite entry to Mare Barrow’s story. For some reason, the books in this series keep getting longer, but fewer and fewer events actually happen in each passing book. King’s Cage was overly self important, boring, and worst of all, lost its spark (pun intended) of romance.
In this breathless third installment to Victoria Aveyard’s bestselling Red Queen series, allegiances are tested on every side. And when the Lightning Girl’s spark is gone, who will light the way for the rebellion?
Mare Barrow is a prisoner, powerless without her lightning, tormented by her lethal mistakes. She lives at the mercy of a boy she once loved, a boy made of lies and betrayal. Now a king, Maven Calore continues weaving his dead mother’s web in an attempt to maintain control over his country—and his prisoner.
